Slovenian Nordic Combined team 2013/14 - SloSki
/ Klemen Zibelnik
After the Italian and Russian team, the Slovenian
World Cup team has now also been named. Head coach
Primoz Triplat will bring Mitja Oranic, Marjan Jelenko
and Gasper Berlot to fill the three World Cup quota
places, plus one additional athlete which Triplat
will nominate later for the team competition on
this upcoming Saturday.
The team was named after returning from a training
camp in Lillehammer, Norway. Unfortunately, Triplat's
team also spent their time in Norway during the
period where no jumping was possible on Lysga*rdsbakken.
Gasper Berlot: "In Norway we have had high
quality training but prior to the start of the season,
I would have liked to have some more jumps on snow."
His teammate Marjan Jelenko adds: "The training
has been quite exhausting. We had two skiing session
a day as the conditions were really good. We have
definitely made progress."
